So, what is a butter?

Butter is a versatile and beloved ingredient that can enhance the flavor and texture of many dishes. It is made from churning cream until the fat separates from the liquid, resulting in a smooth, spreadable consistency. The rich, creamy taste of butter makes it a popular choice for baking, cooking, and spreading on toast. It can also be used to add richness and depth to sauces and soups. Butter is available in various forms, including unsalted, salted, cultured, and clarified, each with its unique flavor and culinary applications. When stored properly, butter can last for several weeks and even months in the freezer, making it a convenient and essential ingredient for any home cook or baker.
